DNC Chair Perez Ignores Donna Brazile's Allegation That Hillary "Rigged" 2016 Primary: "We're Moving Forward"


In an interview Thursday morning on CNBC, DNC Chair Tom Perez does not respond to allegations made by his predecessor, Donna Brazile, that her predecessor, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, had helped Hillary Clinton rig the 2016 Democratic primary in her favor.

Former interim DNC chair Donna Brazile alleged in a Politico op-ed this morning titled, 'Inside Hillary Clinton’s Secret Takeover of the DNC,' that Hillary Clinton had been controlling the finances of the party before officially winning the 2016 presidential nomination. "This was not a criminal act, but as I saw it, it compromised the party’s integrity," Brazile said about the arrangement.

"We're moving forward," Perez said when asked about the allegations. "One of my goals here as DNC chair is to make sure that the nominating process for 2020 is a process that is totally fair and transparent for everybody."

"We have to make sure everything is fair and open, and everybody has a fair shake," Perez said.
